    Name        : ImageMagick
    Product     : Fedora 21
    Version     :
    Release     : 6.fc21
    URL         : https://www.imagemagick.org/
    Summary     : An X application for displaying and manipulating images
    Description :
    ImageMagick is an image display and manipulation tool for the X
    Window System. ImageMagick can read and write JPEG, TIFF, PNM, GIF,
    and Photo CD image formats. It can resize, rotate, sharpen, color
    reduce, or add special effects to an image, and when finished you can
    either save the completed work in the original format or a different
    one. ImageMagick also includes command line programs for creating
    animated or transparent .gifs, creating composite images, creating
    thumbnail images, and more.
    ImageMagick is one of your choices if you need a program to manipulate
    and display images. If you want to develop your own applications
    which use ImageMagick code or APIs, you need to install
    ImageMagick-devel as well.
